Recorded by Dan Sisler, DATs via Kevin Hoffman, Transfer Chris Larson.
there is a sbe on the last track of disc 1 which shouldn't have any detrimental impact on the sound. there are also non-canonical headers on all tracks which should not affect the audio quality of these when burnt to disc, but will show up as an error on shntool under the wav heading - if this really bothers you, you can STRIP the wav's with shntool before burning to cdr - Chris Ladner.

>>>tuning after Liberty-
08:48 mark The banter on the feed continues before Masterpiece. Jerry says"go ahead and pass all the unconscious people up here" "they'll prop them up some where they'll haul em off or? stack "em up like logs" Bobby says "we collect'em" Jerry replies" We're not doin this for fun ya know? I mean GOD!! Phil says "we need slaves really bad">>> Masterpiece.... Jerry is coaxed into soloing by Vince who reports of a "Hot girl in a little black tutu, in Biker glasses, 11 rows back! WOW" >>>Tennessee Jed>>>>
Has anyone heard this monitor feed or have a copy!
This feed is proof that the boys were having fun! Vegas 95 for me was the last of a truly Great, purely American Adventure!!
So Grateful to be alive in this time!!
Subject: If it's the worst GD show ever...
Sure, I like seeing those bands, but it doesn't seem like it's "real". I don't say "Hey, I FINALLY got my St. Stephen" or whatever at one of those shows.
This show was far from the best show that I ever saw, but it was enjoyable at the time, and I like listening to it occasionally these days, too.
The musical low point of this one was the "Samba", except that I was sitting in a section rife with bikers, and the biker chicks were totally digging it, so it was fun to see them having fun.
I recall that there were people at this show that were intent on having a bad time. I suppose some of them have posted on this forum. TS for them. Jerry on an off night was way better than no Jerry at all. I would pay thousands of dollars for a chance to go to an "average" '94/'95-style GD show now.
Things start strong with a tight and upbeat Half Step, and then The Race is On delights everyone. Truckin is great, the post-space part of the second set kinda just shuffles along until it's time for Morning Dew - one of the best versions of this song I know of from the latter years. I'm not claiming perfection or staying this judgment is based on exhaustive research, but give that Morning Dew a listen folks.
Waiting for the boards to surface - funny not to have them because I remember the back in those days Vegas soundboards had surfaced pretty quickly in earlier years.
These shows and Seattle and Portland to follow were my last times seeing the Dead - not a bad note to go out on.
